Heuermann Lecture to Host Former Senators Chuck Hagel, Bob Kerrey

October 11, 2018 - 12:41pm

Former Senators Chuck Hagel and Bob Kerrey from Nebraska will be on stage together on October 22 to discuss civil discourse and its value and impact on Nebraska’s future.  The event is part of the Heuermann lecture series.

The Heuermann public lecture series, named after long-time university supporters Keith and Norma Heuermann, aims to provide interesting and informative discussions on topics of sustainability in food, natural resources and others.

Mike Boehm, vice chancellor of the Institute of Agriculture and Natural Resources which is hosting the event, said the importance of having two distinguished Nebraskans discuss civil discourse is immense.

 “Civil discourse, and how people engage one another for the common good, is a constant need," Boehm said. "To have these two seasoned veterans be able to share their story might help us – at least locally in Nebraska.”

The Heuermann lecture series is free and open to the public, and will be held at the Innovation Campus Conference Center in Lincoln at 3:30 p.m. on October 22. There will be a short question and answer session with the senators after the presentation.  After the public lecture, there will be an opportunity for students and faculty to interact and ask Senators Kerrey and Hagel questions.
